Royal Philips Electronics, Sharp Corp., TCL Corp. and Toshiba Corp. are set to support the activities of the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative by Panasonic Corp., Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, Sony Corp. and X6D Ltd (XPAND 3D) towards the development of a new technology standard for consumer 3D active shutter glasses.

In early August this year, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and XPAND initially announced their intent to work together on the development and licensing of Bluetooth-enabled RF system 3D active shutter glasses technology. Efforts included RF system protocols for consumer 3D active shutter glasses and 3D displays such as TVs, PCs and projectors as well as 3D theatres with XPAND active shutter glasses. The standardisation will also include several types of IR system protocols between 3D active shutter glasses and displays, ranging from the protocols jointly developed by Panasonic and XPAND 3D to the proprietary protocols of Samsung and Sony.

The protocols jointly developed by Panasonic and XPAND were earlier announced in March 2011 and supported by eight participating companies including Changhong Electric Co. Ltd, Funai Electric Co. Ltd, Hisense Electric Co. Ltd, Hitachi Consumer Electronics Co. Ltd, Mitsubishi Electric Corp., Seiko Epson Corp., SIM2 Multimedia S.p.A. and ViewSonic Corp.

In September this year, the licence programme for the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative is scheduled to start such that makers of 3D displays, synchronisation emitters, active shutter glasses or Bluetooth chip devices can receive licences for the development and manufacture of full HD and 3D products.

By year-end, the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative targets to begin certifying products manufactured under the licence allowing the use of a distinct logo that will signify interoperability among 3D active shutter products such as 3D TVs and 3D glasses.
